Product description

A preppy crew pullover gets a lift from stripes at the hem and cuffs accentuated by a staggered rib that subtly interlocks the two colors. Simple techniques make this pattern accessible to the adventurous beginner; a classic fit and tailored shaping will make it an everyday favorite in your wardrobe. Choose a high-contrast or bright accent for the stripes — the sample is shown in Fossil + Tent — or use closely related shades for an understated look.
